FUSION PLASMA PHYSICS
Department for Low and Medium Energy Physics, Jožef Stefan Institute
- Study of hydrogen atom interaction with materials for fusion (Sabina Markelj, Anže Založnik, Primož Pelicon, Iztok Čadež):
- Hydrogen depth profiling in materials by ion beam methods (NRA, ERDA), where our main field of expertise is to follow processes on surface and under it in-situ and in real time.
- Study hydrogen isotope retention in high energy damaged materials (i.e. self-damaged tungsten) – simulation neutron damaging; Recent progress: Study D retention in tungsten simultaneously damaged by high energy W ions and loaded by D.
- Studies of hydrogen atom recombination on material surfaces by vibrational spectroscopy of hydrogen molecules and development of specific method for hydrogen vibrational spectroscopy.
- Modelling of hydrogen adsorption, desorption and recombination on the surface.
Department of Surface Engineering and Optoelectronics, Jožef Stefan Institute
